WASHINGTON — House Ways and Means Chairman Rep. Dave Camp, R-Mich., has created 11 small bipartisan working groups within the committee to work on specific tax reform issues, a senior Republican said Wednesday.

Rep. Charles Boustany, R-La., told those attending a policy luncheon sponsored by POLITICO and the American Action Forum that the 11 working groups are to “entertain all of the issues in each separate area, whether it is international tax or some other part of the tax code.” “Chairman Camp wants these bipartisan working groups to work with the outside groups to get feedback, drill down into the complexity of current law and understand and try to come to some working agreement as to where we will go forward on all this,” Boustany said, adding that he is optimistic about the chairman’s approach to tax reform.
